6 Weeks Postpartum Heavy Period Breastfeeding
Im 6 weeks postpartum and breastfeeding i started my period its very heavy with pelvic and low back ache,heavy painful feet and legs is this normal?
Unfortunately - yes: Your symptoms are common among postpartum women especially if not using an oral contraceptives. Modern OCPs do not interfere with breast feeding if the milk is well established nor does it have significant passage in the milk. They will help reduce the bleeding, pain and heaviness. At 6 weeks you are due to see your OB, so discuss this and find a solution that is best for you. ...Read more

10 Weeks postpartum and exclusively breastfeeding. Had a period at 5 weeks. I'm 5 days late with thicker white dishcharge. Is this pregnancy?
Maybe. Maybe not.: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

9weeks postpartum. I bleed after exercising only. I already had my 6week and everything was good. I am exclusively breastfeeding so its not my period?
Normal: Breast feeding inhibits ovulation, so you are correct the bleeding is not your period. Because you are not yet ovulating, you are not producing the estrogen necessary to heal the uterus after your delivery - that allows the spotting and bleeding to linger, sometimes for up to several months. That is normal. ...Read more

2 months postpartum. Not breastfeeding. Why haven't i had my period yet? 3 negative pregnancy test! and could i still be pregnant?
Time to adjust: It takes time to reset your periods after having a baby. If you had very irregular or widely spaced periods before your baby came, you may be going back to that model. If your periods were quite regular, remember that you could be ovulating, and get pregnant as a result of unprotected sex during ovulation. So do be careful, but remember that a new baby is a lot for your body to adjust to! ...Read more
